How to find registry entries?

Can someone explain to me how I can find registry entries for a particular program that is installed on my Windows machine ( XP, Vista, Win 7 ). It would also be helpful to know how to find entries depending on if your running an x86 or x64 architecture.

Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

Good quick run down on finding registry entries including x86 and x64.

You could try Process Monitor from Microsoft.


Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that  shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It  combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon,  and adds an extensive list of enhancements including rich and  non-destructive filtering, comprehensive event properties such session  IDs and user names, reliable process information, full thread stacks  with integrated symbol support for each operation, simultaneous logging  to a file, and much more. Its uniquely powerful features will make  Process Monitor a core utility in your system troubleshooting and  malware hunting toolkit.

I hope that would help

if you know the name of the program, you can use Regseeker; it lists all keys in one run :  http://www.hoverdesk.net/freeware.htm
